June is here, the summer season is gone. Just a few weeks back, I made my way back to the province for a vacation with my family for some rnr (run and recreation). Yes, running was on the itinerary. While the kids enjoyed the beaches, I sneaked in some running especially in the mornings and continued to explore places I haven't reached for a long time. There's no racing, no competition, just easy runnings on a relaxed pace enjoying the beauty of nature that you can only experience in the province. Green ricefields beneath the blue skies, beautiful trees lined in every corner of the road, the freshest air and the smell of grass and hay will make your day. That was a great experience.
After those fruitful days, I'm back to work and beginning to be a roadrat again. I'm back to what I love doing most, running. Last april I logged in 188km, 50km came from the vacation run and last may I logged in 200km, one of the busiest month for me. I joined almost every sunday races scheduled in this month, skipping just the market market 10miler while in structured recovery mode after the botak 42.
This june, as the kids are back again to school, the rains are back too. As early as today, heavy rainfalls are regular occurrence. A week long of rain had visited the metro and it's quite difficult to run outside, thus affecting the trainings and regular runs. Since I don't have any access to treadmills nowadays, I will settle on stair running instead (or watch the lakers beat the magic) if there's rain.
